Speaking

Over the past few years there have been special events that I have really enjoyed. Travelling to the USA in 2015 and 2018 to speak about my work as a celebrant and presenting to Australian Funeral Directors in 2017 on the changing shape of funeral ceremonies.

The ceremony was elegant and dignified. You truly have a gift for writing and capturing the spirit of the person.

Many people have commented on your role – how wonderful and heartfelt you were. The ceremony was so perfect.

…we immediately felt confidant that your intuition, eloquence and grace would allow us to celebrate his life in such a wonderful way.

You understood the situation well, and I can’t think of how any one else would have done it better.
